subscriptions should be OFF by default!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Recently joined to only get annoying emails.

Subscriptions should be off by default, not visa versa and make a guy go out off his way to turn the un- wanted emails off. Very annoying to say the least and it really leaves a bad first impression about a site.

Quit hounding people from the get go. If a site is good the quality content will bring them back, NOT annoying emails!! wink.gif

AVS is now marks as spam. Easy 1 click fix. smile.gif Maybe if the annoying subscription wasn't ON by default one would read your occasional email instead of marking your frequent subscription emails as spam (the easy, lazy, 1click fix which I am sure most newbies here do).

Sorry guys, they're working on this now. In the mean time, you can uncheck the box under the editor before you submit.

It should be back to normal now.

Thanks Mike, just to be sure, I see a check mark in the box below the editor(called Get Notified when others reply:) and Don't Subscribe is after that in the white box, is this normal for no notifications or do I need to uncheck that box each time I post? I don't want to subscribe to any threads and I'd just as soon not get notified when others reply. I do like to get a email when someone PMs me(and normally do) but I assume thats another setting.

What's in that box, which in your case is correctly "don't subscribe", is set to match your default subscription setting from your profile page.

 

We also keep the option there at the bottom of each reply window in case someone wants to override that setting for that particular post without going back you your profile page.
